Abstract:
			
In this book two of the leading figures in argumentation theory
present a view of argumentation as a means of resolving differences of
opinion by testing the acceptability of the disputed positions. Their
model of a 'critical discussion' serves as a theoretical tool for
analyzing, evaluating and producing argumentative discourse. They
develop a method for the reconstruction of argumentative discourse
that takes into account all aspects that are relevant to a critical
assessment. They also propose a practical code of behavior for
discussants who want to resolve their differences in a reasonable
way. This is a major contribution to the study of argumentation and
will be of particular value to professionals and graduate students in
speech communication, informal logic, rhetoric, critical thinking,
linguistics, and philosophy.

"...a major event in argumentation theory scholarship."
Michael C. Leff, Northwestern University
